An expert system comprising a new pitch marking algorithm based on the estimation of the ideal excitation signal, using energy equalization of harmonics of the fundamental frequency present in speech, and three other competent tools is devised and explained in this paper. This expert system uses simple logical combinations of these tools outputs. The(More)

Speech technology is one of the key technical issues involved in Information Technology as it constitutes an important aspect of Human Computer Interaction. Prediction of speech signal has applications in speech technology, especially in coding. Conventionally linear prediction is used. However, non-linear phenomena exist in speech production. Therefore,(More)
BACKGROUND Management of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with inferior vena cava thrombus (IVCT) is associated with high morbidity. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a known risk factor for perioperative complications in many surgical procedures. The objective of this study was to review the association between preoperative CKD (eGFR < 60 mL/min) and(More)
Testicular epidermoid cysts are a rare cause of testicular pathology. No cases of recurrence or metastasis have been reported in the literature.
